Below is a brief overview of how Stock2Shop syncs product updates from IQ Retail to Magento, and automatically raises online orders into IQ Retail as invoices or sales orders.
There are two main elements to this Stock2Shop integration:
Stock2Shop can sync vital product data from your IQ Retail to your Magento website. This means that your online customers will see accurate stock levels and pricing.
We can, in fact, sync any of your IQ Retail product data to the Stock2Shop console. You can then choose to add enrichment such as images and other marketing information before sending it to the following fields on Magento:
We can accommodate two types of workflows for this integration:
Stock2Shop can sync updates to products that already exist on your ecommerce channel. This is useful if you already have a website that is populated with products. Stock2Shop will ensure that pricing and stock levels are kept up to date in near real time.
Preparing you data for Workflow 1:

Stock2Shop can send your IQ Retail items to your ecommerce channel where they are created. This is useful if you are launching a new website and want to sync your IQ Retail data directly onto your website. Stock2Shop can accommodate simple and multi-variant products.
Preparing you data for Workflow 2: You would need to use the following fields native to your IQ Retail:
